“Walk for Me isn't just a ballroom story. It's also a story about motherhood, and the complexities of family life for queer teens like Hanna." - Emilie Friedlander, Vice 

 12 min. Color. Year of Production: 2016.

A contemporary coming out story set in present day New York City. Hassan Kendricks is a conflicted teenager torn between his devotion to his single mother and his desire to be himself. When his mother, Andrea, finds women’s underwear and a flyer to a Gay Ball in her son’s bedroom, she decides to track Hassan down and confront him about his decisions. Arriving at the ball, Andrea only finds a shock: under the wing of his adoptive gay mother, Paris Continental, Hassan has assumed the identity of Hanna. Andrea is confronted by a choice — deny her own son or accept her child for who she really is. A film by Elegance Bratton. Produced by Chester Algernal. 

Starring: Yolonda Ross, Aaliyah King. Written & Directed by: Elegance Bratton. 

“I wanted to show the world a story about black trans women that didn’t hinge on their pain, because we weren't getting narratives of these women as mothers. We were getting narratives of these women as being prime targets, but we're not getting really a sense of what the community loses when they're taken from us. Within the black community, we have yet to have a deep, nuanced conversation about gender identity, and particularly the difference between gender identity and sexuality.” - Elegance Bratton, Out.com
